  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, then stir in the sugar. Mix to combine, then make a well in the middle. Crack the eggs in and add the milk. Whisk until you have a smooth batter. Whisk in the melted butter and set aside.
  2. To make the cinnamon swirl, stir the brown sugar into 3 tbsp of the pancake mix along with the cinnamon. Pour into a piping bag.
  3. Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat and add 2 heaped tbsp of the batter to the pan. Snip the corner off your piping bag and draw a swirl on top of the batter. Cook for 2 mins, or until bubbles start to form, then flip over and cook for 1-2 mins more until light golden brown. Repeat to make 12 pancakes.
  4. To make the icing, carefully mix together the milk and cream cheese, then microwave for 10-20 secs until gently warmed and melted. Mix until smooth, then stir in the vanilla extract and icing sugar and beat until smooth. You might need to warm it again so it’s pourable and smooth, then drizzle over the pancakes to serve.
